    Hi Ladies :)

    Im 7 weeks today and am going for an early scan tomorrow after being off work for 2 weeks with threatened miscarriage... I'm so scared.... I had a MMC in December and am terrified it'll happen again :(

    Does anyone know, if I see a heartbeat tomorrow, does the risk drop and if so how much?

    Thanks

    I know its scary, in my last m/c I saw the heartbeat and then lost a week later. This time even though i've seen the hb im still petrified. My OH says just stay calm and nature will do what its going to do. Im still trying to do that. Just try to stay positive and fingers crossed all will be fine.

    It makes it easier if someone goes with you I find.

    Forgot to say the risk is meant to drop once the hb has been seen.
